Following the hike in electricity tariffs for Band A customers who enjoy at least 20 hours of electricity daily, the NERC mandated Discos to ensure those in the category receive 20 hours of electricity supply daily.

The regulator also stated that when Discos fail to provide such services, it should publish the reason for the failure on its platforms the next day.

The NERC also mandated Discos to open a portal where customers can check their locations and band feeders to prevent inappropriate billing.

The Federal Government increased the tariff for Disco earlier this month from about N68/KWh to N225/KWh as a measure of attracting investment to the power sector and reducing the electricity subsidy burden on its books.

The increase in Band A location means more electricity customers paying the new tariff of N225/KWh for the Disco, which means more revenue.
